Lakme’ NEW 9 to 5 Lipstick- Beige Post review & swatches


ABOUT: Say no to Touch Ups! Lakmé 9 to 5 range consists of a wide collection for daily office wear with subtle shades that require no touch-ups through the day, providing an impeccably styled look and allowing a hassle-free transition from the desk to the office party. This range aims at the “no touch ups” theme.


PRICE: Rs. 400 for 3.6 ml


PACKAGING: The packaging is classy and very appealing. It is very decent with a champagne pink metallic bullet having the shade name at the bottom. The packaging is sturdy.

SHADE:  Beige Post is a very subtle nude brown shade with silver shimmer.



TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lipstick is smooth and it glides on easily.However,as in all cases,it starts getting dry after few minutes and settles to a matte finish from being satin-matte.I find this shade a bit too drying and uncomfortable to wear as compared to the others.


My lips feel very dry and the sparkle in the lipstick settles in the lip lines makes them feel gritty.The staying power is also low for about 2 hours as it is a light shade and fades easily.I f I have a drink in between then I can see,lipstick peelings at the mouth of the mug which is a total put off.Also,this shade is not meant for all skin tones as it washes my nc35 skin tone a bit and can look streaky on darker skin tones.




  • Classy,Beautiful and sturdy packaging.
  • gorgeous everyday wear shade.
  • creamy texture.
  • glides on easily.
  • cost effective.
  • has satiny feel on lips.
  • the lipstick becomes very matte.
  • the shimmer present is gritty.
  • Can be bit drying for very dry lips.
  • Settles into lip lines.
  • need a layer of lip balm underneath.
  • Can accentuate dry flaky skin.
  • the shimmer stays on lips even after the lipstick wears off.

  RATING: 2/5

  RECOMMENDATION It s better to try other shades than this as i find this shade hard to carry and the matte finish is very            uncomfortable.Also,the staying power is low and the shimmer is gritty!!

Lakme Salon_Day 1

Designer Quote: Sidhhartha Arya– My collection for LFW W/F 2013 was torn apart between conventions and following one’s dreams. Taking hints from science and technology, the print captures order and symmetry coexisting with chaos and fear. Therefore the make-up and nail art was in sync with the collection theme- black stunning statement lips and geometrical nail art designs.

Designer Quote: Deepak Goswami and Isha Kedia– We are glad to be associated with Lakmé Salon and integrate the nail art trends with our collection. Nails are fast becoming the next beauty accessory for every contemporary woman. Thus for our show, Lakmé Salon experts styled the nails with the base colors as white, black or silver complementing the sharp geometric patterns of our collection.

Lakmé Salon Expert Quote: Sushma Khan– Keeping in mind the theme of the designers, we created geometrical nail art designs to give their creation a chic runway twist. Accompanied with accessories and stones it not only enhances the look but also added that oomph factor to the collection.

Arising from the trend capital of fashion- Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013, nail art are the latest hot favorites of runway. So, this season let your nails do the talking and let your fingertips make a style statement!

Lakme’ NEW 9 to 5 Lipstick- Peony Goal review & swatches

So,here is my perfect shade for Office wear.A shade that will add class to your look and pep up the lips!!!
ABOUT: Say no to Touch Ups! Lakmé 9 to 5 range consists of a wide collection for daily office wear with subtle shades that require no touch-ups through the day, providing an impeccably styled look and allowing a hassle-free transition from the desk to the office party. This range aims at the “no touch ups” theme.
PRICE: Rs. 400 for 3.6 ml
PACKAGING: The packaging is classy and very appealing. It is very decent with a champagne pink metallic bullet having the shade name at the bottom. The packaging is sturdy.
SHADE: Peony Goal is a ice brown with very light red tones.It has golden shimmer in it .The shimmer isn’t very chunky but visible in swatches and on lips.


TEXTURE, FINISH & STAYING POWER: I like the creamy texture of the lipstick. It is very buttery and goes on smoothly on lips that soon settles to a matte finish.
The lipstick is  light weight and non-sticky.
 The lipstick settles to a matte finish and can be a bit drying for dry lips. I suggest application of  a lip balm underneath. Due to the matte finish,it accentuates dry flaky lips so proper exfoliation is very necessary. The shade is subtle and great  for office wear .It  will suit all skin tones. The shimmer present in it is very minute and not at all harsh.
The lipstick decently pigmented and one swipe will cover the lips properly. Also, although it gets matte but it doesn’t get over drying which is a major advantage as it prolongs the wear of the lipstick without being drying. Staying power is not fully 9 to 5 but it stays comfortable for 5-6 hours.
  • Beautiful and sturdy packaging.
  • creamy texture.
  • it applies easily.
  • the shimmer present is non-gritty.
  • goes on smoothly on lips.
  • the shade is great for daily wear.
  • decent staying power.
  • decent pigmentation.
  • reasonably priced.
  • the lipstick settles to a comfortable matte finish.
  • Can be bit drying for very dry lips.
  • Settles into lip lines.
  • Can accentuate dry flaky skin.
  • presence of shimmer might not be liked by everybody.
 RECOMMENDATIONI ma definitely impressed by this range and it is a pleasant surprise over the earlier range.Highly recommended range and shade,
